Coronavirus: Tories push on with A&E closures that ‘will only result in death’

This takes Tory ignorance to new homicidal levels.

It seems the Conservative government is pressing ahead with the closures of Accident and Emergency departments and intensive care units in hospitals across London (the rest of the UK isn’t mentioned) despite the fact that the UK is in the grip of the coronavirus pandemic.

The likely result is summed up by GMB union organiser Helen O’Connor, who said: “The removal of these services at existing major acute hospitals will only result in death.”

That’s even though the Tories are planning to open a special Covid-19 hospital in the Excel Centre in east London to care for an additional 4,000 patients afflicted with the disease.

It seems these lunatic toffs really don’t have a clue what they’re doing or what it signifies for the fight against the virus.

    They will plough on regardless because that’s all they know and will never be open to new ideas – that’s the Tory way.
    Not a creative bone in their body, all they think about is money, statistics and balances.

    That’s why every time they are “caught out” they call for some left-wing adults into the room for a creative and compassionate solution – and then adopt a half-assed version of what they are advised.

    Fascist tories delighted at the pandemic because it will mean a ‘widespread cull’ of all those disposable non-humans! Even better the fascist tories are closing more A & E departments because hey no need for them! Fascist tories know exactly what they are doing which is saving public money and using this to spend on their vanity projects such as that stupid rail link between London and the Midlands!

    The fascist tory myopic thinking is so dangerous but hey they’ll think of new distractions to keep josephine and joe public’s attention away from their eugenic policies!

    There are no private hospital accident and emergency units. The rich can get home care and private hospital intensive care. Nothing proves more why rich Tories, are the enemy of the rest of us.
